Pillar Box Red - Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Bronze, gold, green, blue and chocolate brown were all colours applied to pillar boxes. In fact, their livery mainly depended upon the personal choice of the district surveyor. That is, until 1874, when Pillar Box Red became the standard colour for the highly decorated mail posting boxes.

 

Deep purple in colour, this Australian red has blueberry, liquorice and even a hint of dried mint on the nose. It has upfront blackcurrant and cherry fruit on the palate with soft, persistent tannins.
